Science and Education Center
The Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library houses the Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Science and Education Center, which was funded by a $50,000 grant from the Sandoz US Foundation.

The Science and Education Center is located on the library’s first floor.  The center is currently transitioning from a collections-based center to a MakerSpace. The purpose of our MakerSpace is to engage 9-18 year-olds in active learning and discovery.  Participants will be invited to explore STEAM concepts (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) with guided and self-driven activities and demonstrations.  We will also invite adults into the space as an Artist/Scientist in Residence to model artistic and scientific processes, answer questions, provide guidance and motivation, and to promote curiosity.

The Science and Education Center collection once contained books, databases, CD-ROMS, videos, posters, study kits, games, models, and scientific equipment designed to enhance learning on a variety of scientific subjects for children age 18 months to 18 years old.  These materials have been re-integrated into appropriate areas of the library and can be searched in the online catalog.  Please ask a librarian if you need more assistance locating these titles.
